Efe Straightened Out by Amar

zedmaster84 • Level 8: 1,000-2,000, 2,000 ante

Seref Amar's {a-Spades}{3-Spades} earned a knockout as he made the wheel on the {q-Spades}{5-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} board. His opponent Aziz Efe was narrowly covered as the stacks were counted but the {10-Spades}{10-Clubs} were no good to send Efe to the rail just shy of making Day 2.

Mustafov and Chouity Among the Big Stacks

zedmaster84 • Level 8: 1,000-2,000, 2,000 ante

Nicolas Chouity check-called a bet by Aleksandr Merzhvinskiy on the {k-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} flop and the {2-Hearts} turn was checked. Chouity bet the {k-Diamonds} river for 7,000 and Merzhvinskiy surrendered. It was just a small pot for Chouity but he has amassed a big stack so far, which only trails the tower in front of Fahredin Mustafov on the same table.

"Jack nine?" Mustafov inquired and Chouity replied "there is no jack in my hand" while dragging in the chips and enjoying a massage.

Semaska Takes It on the Flop

zedmaster84 • Level 8: 1,000-2,000, 2,000 ante

On a three-way flop of {q-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}, Vytautas Semaska bet 5,000 in the small blind and Thom Greben called in the hijack. Erik Bauer raised to 20,000 in the cutoff and Semaska then reraised to 60,000. Greben folded and so did Bauer.

"I will show if you show," Bauer offered and Semaska instead suggested they both show one card. Bauer revealed the {9-Clubs} and Semaska flashed the {k-Hearts}. "I am glad you showed that card," Bauer replied and then put his opponent on king-nine.
